First introduced in 2016, the A. Lange & Söhne Richard Lange Jumping Seconds* featured a particular take on the regulatuer dial aesthetic. While the dial is inspired by a pocket watch by a 18th century maker, the manually wound calibre underpinning the watch features a remontoire and natural deadbeat seconds complication. The dial is as beautifully balanced as the movement is elegantly finished in a style typical to the German mark. This example is also made attractive by the fact that it was one of a limited series of 100 pieces cased in platinum.


The name Lange has been tied to watchmaking and the Saxony area of Germany for centuries. In the 1800s, Ferdinand Aldoph Lange – which is where the “A” in A. Lange & Söhne comes from – began his watchmaking journey under the tutelage of master watchmaker, Johann Christian Friedrich Gutkaes. Passed from father to son, the Lange name flourished, before encountering considerable obstacles during 20th century.

In 1990, the brand was resuscitated by Walter, the great-grandson of Ferdinand Adolph Lange, and watch industry veteran Günter Blümlein. A Nuremberg native, Blümlein grew up in post-war Germany, and had previously overseen the resurgence of IWC and Jaeger-LeCoultre. This started the four-year journey that Lange and Blümlein would go on with their small team to bring the company back from the ashes, with the release of their first four models on 25th October 1994.
